    I'm now beginning to wonder if I'm cut out for growing food. This Courgette sitting in my greenhouse is yellow and floppy :-(

      It needs to be outside Jane preferably out of the wind to start with.
      They are very hungry and thirsty plants.
      The container is a bit on the small side as they will be massive generous plants ,but I wouldn’t change that now........next year.

        I think it would be still possible to pot on one more time this year, but not just yet, get it going well first and making lots of new leaves.
        I too think it would be better outside, never considered them to be greenhouse plants myself, but I know some people do.

          Thanks all. I was only growing in greenhouse in case they don't grow well outside in the North East as its not as hot at the South.
